Neefer Sews, Crochets, Crafts, Swims, and Blathers about Kids and Her Stuggles with an Eating Disorder
I saw this at Joann’s and thought it would be cool to make, but that’s as far as I got. I think I have the mesh stuff.

Chunguita decided to make fried plantains for extra credit in one of her classes. Fortunately, Safeway had some.
She found a recipe on-line that called for double frying them. (I saw a Good Eats show on frying that recommended the double fry.)
I love trying new food, so I very eager to taste them. They don’t taste like much, very disappointing.
So we put Crystal hot sauce on them. They were fabulous. I’m thinking of making them for guests.
A very bright orange, what?
I’m going to make a dress. The pattern is from Burda December 2002. I’ve made it before, as a top, but, alas, no pictures. I couldn’t find any pix on the web of the pattern, and I’m too lazy to take or scan my own.
Chunguita and her friends decided they wanted to be a trio of fairies for Halloween. So after interviewing them, I produced the following excellent design sketch.
The one on the left was for Kate; she wanted a puffy, full skirt. Chunguita wanted something more fitted, so I suggested a gored skirt.
Chunguita was not convinced by my first sketch, so I made her a more detailed one.
And we created the pattern piece shown on the right.
Chunguita cut out gores from tulle and pinned them together. I did the sewing. I’m not letting anyone touch my precious.
Below you can see the first layer for the skirt.

It’s short, and the end is amusing.
